Our Head Instructor started with; an apprenticeship program as a heavy duty mechanic followed by a lengthy career in the field of Hydraulics as a Service Technician. (Over Twenty Five Years) He then worked as an Instructor for large companies training operators on Various Types of Mobile Equipment.
After repairing and servicing machines from small garden tractors to large logging and mining equipment, our instructor would operate and test the equipment beyond the manufacturers specifications. All systems were always tested thoroughly during the operation of the machines.
Testing the equipment this way would assure the safety of the operator and that the machines would perform at the safest and optimum operating conditions.
Having extensive knowledge about the Safety and Dangers of operating mobile equipment, our instructor will pass on this experience during the course and explain to the students what it is they need to be aware of when examining the hydraulic system and mechanical moving parts of the machine during a pre-use inspection.
Our Head Instructors' knowledge in Heavy Duty Mechanical Repairs, Hydraulics and Machine Operation is where we exceed CSA, WorkSafe & OSHA requirements.
